Well, let's take a look at the face of Grimes, year by year(ish), Skin Care Edit style, starting with...
Grimes in High School.
Here we see a fresh faced and young Claire, rejecting her upper class roots and declaring her love for Stalin. Uh oh! Hope that's not ironic in the future! Grimes lays pretty low for the next few years until she turns up...
On A Sinking Houseboat (2009)
Not the best picture of her face, sure, but what Grimes post is complete without it. Just the next year, Grimes is back in Canada and starting to break into the indie mainstream with...
Geidi Primes (2010)
In the Vanessa music video, we see Grimes looking made up but still natural. Her lips are pouty but tiny and you can see the natural shape of her original nose quite well from multiple angles. She spends the next year touring and then recording her next album Visions, which is released in 2012.
She spends a lot of this era looking the same. Sorry, nothing exciting yet! But the next year was when she posted on her now deleted Tumblr “I don’t want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living" in a rant about sexism, saying she was no longer going to be passive. Read more about that here!
Art Angels Grimes (2015)
Visions got a lot of mainstream press and Art Angels saw Grimes partying with Jay Z, playing shows to Katy Perry, and sitting front row at fashion shows. Did she still look disheveled? Yep! That's just Grimes!.......for now.
Any refinement of her looks in this era does seem to be from access to better outfits, better jewelry and better makeup.
Grimes in 2017
Grimes first Met Gala! Let's take notice of her nose and lips and light makeup. We can still see the natural small bump in her nose in her side profile.
We've all seen the pictures of her and Elon's red carpet debut so let's take a look at this picture of her at the Met Gala after party. I think what we are seeing here is access to very expensive stylists. She honestly looks great here! Very refined. Soon however...
Grime in 2019
I think we are definitely starting to see some of that Musk influence his ex wife was talking about. I don't know about you guys but I think I might be seeing a slimmer nose and I am definitely seeing fuller lips. There is absolutely nothing wrong with changing your look but you should definitely be doing it for yourself and not because a man bullies you into it.
Grimes For Rolling Stone
I've been avoiding magazine covers because they're obviously photoshopped but man, if you'd have showed this to me when I was bopping to Visions and said "This is Grimes, she's pregnant with Elon Musk's baby" I would have not believed it!
And that brings us to...
The lips? Even plumper. The nose? Hard to tell because the pic is blown out so let's take a look at a different one...
Hmmm. Could be makeup or could be filler? I also suspect she got fat removal in her cheeks to give her a more sculpted look. Her new thinner face definitely is not from weight loss considering she has always been incredibly thin (real ones will remember people uncovering her pro-ana livejournal!).
Let's take a look at a side by side of Grimes in 2010 and 2019.
So what do you think, ONTD? Would you change your face and more importantly abandoned your morals to secure the bag? What about if that bag required you to have sex with a man that looked like Elon Musk and birth his spawn?
